The Flobots are a rock-hip hop band out of Denver. There's really nothing quite like this band. Do not miss them Friday night at The Mesa Theatre.

Mesa Theatre

Featuring dual MCs as well as a full band, Flobots are a progressive rap group with a political conscience, musical chops, and a powerful live show. Influenced by progressive rappers such as The Roots as well as alternative hard rock bands such as Rage Against the Machine and Tool. I'm not saying this band is at the same level but the influence is there.

The band were founded in 2005, comprised of MCs Jonny 5 (born Jamie Laurie) and Brer Rabbit (born Stephen Brackett), who all the way back to grade school, along with musicians Andy Guerrero (guitar), Mackenzie Roberts (viola), Joe Ferrone (trumpet), Jesse Walker (bass), and Kenny Ortiz (drums).

The group released its debut recording, the seven-track Platypus EP, in October 2005. Their debut full-length, Fight with Tools (2007), followed a couple years later. Flobots inspired a strong following over in Denver and have opened for national acts such as Public Enemy and The Fray.
